Stress is the wear and tear the body experiences in reaction to everyday challenges, tensions and pressures. The American Institute of Stress claim that up to 90% of all health problems are related to stress. Too much stress wears down the immune system, increasing the risk of everything from colds to hypertension. Chronic stress can contribute to heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, depression and sleep disorders.

The fact is you can't eliminate stress from your life, but you can learn how to manage it and reverse the damage it can cause.

In today's world, it's important for people to learn stress reduction and emotional management skills. As a health professional, you can help your clients take an active role in preventing stress, managing the emotions associated with stress and creating better health.

How the emWave® technology can help

You can use the emWave® Pro or the portable emWave®2 with your clients to help them learn internal awareness, self-regulation, and emotional management skills. They can learn to prevent stress by becoming aware of when the stress response starts and stopping it in the moment.

The emWave® Pro is an easy-to-use software program with a health rhythm monitor. The system is an innovative approach to stress relief based on learning to change the heart rhythm pattern and create physiological coherence in the body.

With the program clients can see how their thoughts and emotions affect the heart and nervous system. When stressed, the client's heart rhythm has an irregular, jagged, incoherent pattern. When the client shifts to a more positive emotional state, the heart rhythm pattern changes to a smoother, wave-like, coherent pattern. By seeing the visual changes on the screen and associating it with a more peaceful, calm internal state, the clients learns to manage stress and maintain a state of physiological coherence and balance.

The emWave® technology is a complete learning system including tutorial. Thousands of people around the world are using the emWave® system to reduce their stress, improve performance in business and sports, increase awareness and intelligence, and create better relationships.

The system is simple, effective, easy-to-use, affordable, and patients like to use it. It feels good to use it, both for the patient and the practitioner. Help your clients make life-style changes and healthy choices.

Benefits of using the emWave® technology with your clients:


  • prevent stress before it occurs
  • manage emotional that accompany stress
  • easy-to-use with both children and adults
  • has a positive focus, feels good to use
  • has a high compliance rate
  • combines well with other therapies


By providing the emWave® technology to your clients, they can practice at work or at home to reduce stress and improve their health. Support materials are also available, including a Client Education brochure and a Health Professional Guide for Using the emWave® Technology with your clients.
